But let’s say that you just found the job of your life.. Well if you’re looking for a button in the account settings of your Shine account to remove your profile then, just as I did first, hold your horses. The reason? It doesn’t exist.

I’ll show you what you need to do to close your account permanently the right way on a desktop computer:

 1  After reading Shine’s privacy policy…

I discovered that an account can only be removed upon request. Or as it is mentionned in Shine’s privacy policy: Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible (source:

In that same privacy policy their email address is mentionned: contactus(at) So that’s the email address we need to send our request to.
